Theresa May drives the Brexit bus off a cliff at Bonfire Night Effigy

Remember, remember the fifth of November, when people burn huge effigies of politicians.

Of course, Bonfire Night but thousands of people have descended on the town of Lewes in East Sussex to do just that.

Theresa May was a popular choice this year with a number of effigies created in her image.

The Lewes Borough Bonfire Society also produced the 'Lewes Ghost Train' in a sarcastic nod to the problems the town has faced with public transport and its parent company Govia Thameslink.

The company came under fire from society spokesman Mick Symes for a limited train service during the event.
